[audio]The Green Mountain, Rakish Paddy - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV B1930. Tom Ennis had recorded the Green Mountain a year or two before, calling it the Maid Behind the Bar. Like Rakish Paddy it is one of the staples of the piper's repertoire. Walsh's music here is very lively albeit taken at a fearsome pace.

[audio]Murphy's Hornpipe, Londonderry Clog, MacNamara Hornpipe - Hornpipe Medley No. 3 - Tom Ennis
Irish bagpipes solo, Victor 18366. Fiddler Michael Coleman recorded another Murphy's hornpipe in the 30's, with multiple parts. "Clog" was a term for a type of complex hornpipe suited for dancing in clog boots; generally these were fiddle compositions, usually in flat keys. Despite the title this tune isn't usually considered a clog. Ennis later recorded this as a duet with fiddler James Morrison, as the Londonderry hornpipe...

[audio]The Pigeon on the Gate, The Milliner's Daughter - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, Edison Bell Winner 5218. Walsh plays the Pigeon in A, as did Felix Doran on his 78 recorded in the 50s. It appears in the Leo Rowsome Collection in both A and E setttings. The A setting played by these pipers goes up to high C, not an insurmountable difficulty with a good chanter but requiring shifting position on the fiddle, which is difficult to do at speed. Thus some Donegal fiddle versions avoid the high C, or are set in the more fiddle friendly key of G...

[audio]Dunphy's Hornpipe, The Woods of Kilkenny - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV B1930. Walsh would record Dunphy's again in 1933. Woods of Kilkenny is a tune from O'Neill's. Walsh's student Tommy Kearney said that Walsh would go on the radio and sight read tunes from O'Neill's "fast as the reel." Like many other musicians pipers were fond of "The Book" and used it to expand their repetoire.

Tom Ennis - Dublin Reel (May 2, 1929) Irish pipes, Victor 21444, Ed Geoghegan at the piano. This setting is different than what is commonly played now, closer to that given in O'Neill's from Barney Delaney, O'Neill's piping brother-in-law and a likely influence on Tom from an early age.

[audio]Haymaker's Dance (Mouse in the Cupboard, Rambling Pitchfork) - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F 3818. Walsh's 1933 recordings included "Figure Dances" such as this one, and the Fairy Reel, Walls of Limerick, Rogha an Fhile, and Stack of Barley (which doesn't include the hornpipe of that name). These two jigs are played with outstanding punch and lift, Walsh was much more at home in the studio by this time and had perfected his very exciting combination of regulator tapping and lovely swinging chanter playing.

[audio]The Star of Munster - Old Ireland Quartette
Irish bagpipes, fiddle, flute, and cello. Beltona label. The lineup here is William Andrews, pipes, James Cawley, flute, and Frank O'Higgins, fiddle, backed by the cello (name unknown), which along with Andrews's chugging on his regulators gives a quite unique sound. Cawley and O'Higgins also recorded with piper James Ennis in the Fingal Trio, one recording of which is on this site. A 78 of Andrews is featured here as well...

[audio]Mamma's Pet, My Love is On the Ocean - Tom Ennis and Redie Johnson
Irish bagpipes and accordion, Gennet 5054, John Muller - piano. Mam(m)a's Pet was also recorded around this time by fiddler Michael Coleman in great style. In O'Neill's this is called Timothy Downing's, after one of O'Neill's boyhood instructors; in the later book Waifs and Strays of Gaelic melody he also prints "Mama's Pet" from Mayo fiddler John McFadden. A Galway version was recorded by fiddle/flute player Gabe O'Sullivan on the 70s LP Joe and the Gabe, on the Green Linnet label...

Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F3816. Walsh's student Tommy Kearney calls this The College Groves, and his setting and title have been picked up by modern pipers such as Robbie Hannon and Jimmy O'Brien-Moran, who have recorded it on LPs/cassettes/CDs. Seamus Ennis's variant, the New Desmne, had a different first part but otherwise resembles this tune. My first instructor on the pipes pointed out to me that this tune is, in some of its parts, the same as the equally well-known big reel Colonel Frasie...

Irish bagpipes solo, Arthur P. Kenna - piano. Gallagher was a Leitrim flute player who learned the pipes in America. His piping setting of Lucy Campbell differs greatly in places from that recorded by Michael Coleman, which is now standard. This setting was transcribed in both the Dance Music of Willie Clancy and Ceol Rince Na Eireann Vol. 2, in the latter taken from the piping of Andy Conroy, a Roscommon musician who knew Gallagher in New York City and recorded a pair of duets with him on a hom...

[audio]Boy in the Boat, The Morning Dew - Leo Rowsome
Irish bagpipes solo, Decca W5246. The Boy in the Boat is unique to Leo as far as I know, and very much a piping reel, with its prominent cranning on the bottom D. Leo's full stop just before proceeding into the second tune is a wonderful effect. Chicago piper and solid Rowsome fan Joe Shannon recorded this tune on the 70s LP he made with fiddler Johnny McGreevy, The Noonday Feast. The Moring Dew isn't the reel recorded by Michael Coleman, but rather the tune almost always called the Woman of the...

[audio]The Salamanca - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV B1947. Piper Michael Gallagher recorded this tune around the same time as Walsh, and Gallagher's recording may be heard on this site as well. The two versions differ greatly in ornamentation, and while both are very bouncy performances Walsh's has even more swing. A friend of mine transcribed some of these early piping recordings, and set some of the reels in 12/8, usually used for jigs, instead of the usual 4/4, to convey this swing...

[audio]The Blackbird (HMV version) - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV B1947. Walsh re-recorded this for Decca nine years later. It is interesting to compare the two version, he seemed to gain confidence in his playing and have more of a sense of arrangement, as well as keeping his tempo down.

Irish bagpipes and fiddle, Gennet 5003, Paddy Muldoon - piano. Three hearty tunes from O'Neill's collections. All three are still heard today and the second reel especially is still a universal favorite. Gerrity made a couple of solo 78s, one of which also was titled the Bush in Bloom.

Irish bagpipes solo, Decca label, matrix number unknown (F3815?). The first and last reels are perennial piper's favorites, Seamus Ennis for one recorded both in 1940 on acetates made for radio broadcast. Walsh speeds up during the very last bars of the Peeler's Jacket for some reason, but holds his tempo for Dan McCarthy's Fancy, a reel he'd recorded 7 years earlier. This tune is accredited in O'Neill's Music of Ireland to O'Neill's brother-in-law Barney Delaney, a fantastic piper whose music s...

Irish bagpipes solo, Gennet 5356, Federic D. Wood - piano. As far as I know no biographical information has come to light about McLaughlin. His piping has much in common with Tom Ennis's, lively danceable music cleanly played. The Road to Galway is usually called the London Lassies, the title from O'Neill's books. Mullaney & Stack called it the Maid in the Cherry Tree, and their recording may be heard on the CD Wheels Of The World, Early Irish American Music, Vol...

[audio]The Stack of Barley Medley (Alexander's, Dunphy's) - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F3816. Walsh had recorded Dunphy's in 1924, which can also be heard on this site. Alexander's is printed in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903), but strangely enough not in the more common Dance Music of Ireland (1907). Nevertheless it seems to have always been a popular piper's tune. Some more instances of him using the Scotch Snap (a sixteenth note leading into an eighth note) are present in both tunes, a device which was rarely heard after the 78 era...

Irish bagpipes solo, REX 15044. George White was said to be a NYC bar owner, honored in this reel first recorded by Sligo fiddler Paddy Sweeney. When I was learning the pipes my tutor (who was a big Leo fan) always insisted Leo played the 1812 Overture on the regulators in Colonel Fraser. Never quite heard it myself! This is one of the great piping reels, and a tricky tune to play, found in innumerable versions on all instruments...

Irish bagpipes solo, HMV IM528. Byrne's is an ever popular tune, also recorded by Michael Coleman and the Ballinakill Ceili Band on 78. Kilfinane (Cill Fhíonáin in Irish) is a small market town in southeast County Limerick, and this hornpipe was contributed to Francis O'Neill's books by Tipperary fiddler Edward Cronin. Cronin composed tunes and this may be one of his originals. This is likely an example of Leo adapting tunes from books, although he may have learned it from a Munster musician -...

Irish pipes, unknown piano player, Columbia 33421-F, also released in England. Ennis had earlier recorded this medley twice solo - and in duet with fiddler James Morrison - company records show rejected takes of it too! The source in O'Neill's Music of Ireland for Trim the Velvet is Tom's father John, also a piper. The second reel was called the Maid Behind the Bar on most old 78s but is generally now called Kiss the Maid Behind the Barrel.

Irish bagpipes, violin, drum, HMV IM480. Two of this charming trio's recordings were reissued on the Classics of Irish Piping LP/CD. According to Sean Reid (who wrote the reissue's liner notes) it was an impromptu recording of Leo and two studio musicians who weren't players of Irish music, but read off charts Leo wrote out on the spot. One of the standard reels in old days. Francis O'Neill wrote of taking a trip home to Ireland in 1908 and hearing little else but "Miss McLeod and her brethren" ...

[audio]Connaughtman's Rambles, The Frost is All Over - Tom Ennis, Redie Johnson, Tom Quigley
Irish bagpipes, accordion, fiddle, Gennet 5040, John Muller - piano. The tunes are played in reverse order of their listing, as is the case with the other set of tunes on the flipside, curiously enough. This occasionally happened with 78s; Michael Coleman recorded a pair of reels in the 30s, The Wild Irishman/O'Rourke's, the titles of which were reversed, with the result that his Wild Irishman is to this day called O'Rourke's.

Irish bagpipes, Gennet 5283, Harry Race - piano. This is Ennis's second recording of these reels; he'd record them once more, in 1929. I came across a remark once that he tended to mix up the parts of the two tunes as he went along, but don't hear that myself, although it can happen.

Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F6254. One of the old set dances, which had an irregular structure and special steps for dancing. In the liner notes of one of the recent Topic CD reissues of Irish 78s Reg Hall remarked that dancers found the set dances on records made by Gaelic League sponsored musicians such as Rowsome, Liam Walsh, and Billy Andrews, unsatisfactory in terms of tempo or structure. Whatever the case, Leo's playing leaves nothing to fault for timing, harmony, or liveliness...

[audio]The Blackbird (Decca version) - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F3817. Walsh had recorded this earlier, but this version is much more exciting, with almost a "Scotch snap" feel in places, and an amazing syncopation between regulators and chanter, that is characteristic of the sides he made for Decca in 1933. Also the tempo is much more moderate than the often rushed speeds of his earlier sides. The flip side of this was Walsh's version of the reel the Bucks of Oranmore, which may be heard on Rounder's CD From Galway to Dublin.

[audio]Walsh's Favorite, The Butcher's March - Tom Ennis
Irish bagpipes solo, Emerald 10394. Walsh's Favorite is an amalgam of two jigs in O'Neill's books: Hinchey's Delight (first part) and Jackson's Maid (second parts). This shuffling about of components of tunes is very common in the folk process, where musicians learn material orally and often forget titles, phrases, or sections of tunes; or mangle/distort same. Ennis's tune is very attractive melodically, and a good tune for a learner as it only ascends two notes into the chanter's second octave...

Irish bagpipe chanter, fiddle, flute, unknown label and recording date. The exact name of this ensemble eludes me at the moment. Martin Feeney is the flute player; the piper is Andy Conroy, a Roscommon musician who played in an exceedingly staccato style, almost experimental in ways, which he puts on hold for these lively sets of tunes.

Leo included the Primrose Lass in his 1936 piping tutor, which is included in the Leo Rowsome Collection. Tom Ennis also recorded the Ivy Leaf, calling it the New Steamboat...

Seamus Ennis paired Bonnie Kate and the Milliner's Daughter on acetates he recorded in 1940.
